Be warned, as well as some great dishes, you will find things you hate in here. But try them just the same. My wife has a serious dislike of Quiche Lorraine, but agreed to try the version in this book. She ate it all and enjoyed it, but we won't be having it again for a while - it's very calorie-heavy! Give this book a try, it's great fun and if you're too young to remember the dishes in it, you're in for a real treat - good food is not an invention of the current crop of TV chefs - it's always been there.
Beautifully produced (the two editions differ in their choice of illustration and layout; the text appears to be identical (including one trifling typo I spotted); it's a good read as well as a guide to some almost-forgotten but delicious dishes. The recipes all work, which is more than can be said for many other cookery books!
Thoroughly recommended on all counts.
This really is the best book for staple recipes, which anyone who wants to produce top notch food needs to own. Rarely do I get a recipe book (& believe me I get a lot) where I have found each & every recipe to be excellent. Thoroughly recommended.
